I had the pleasure of meeting You Tuber and beauty blogger, Tanya Burr, at Selfridges in London yesterday in aid of the new Clarisonic offering; the Aria. This so happens to coincide with the launch of Tanya Burr’s very own lip gloss and nail polish range (with Eye Candy) which happened the night before at The Sanderson hotel.
I managed to exchange a few words with her and I must say she’s a abit more quiet in real life (and very petite) although it must be overwhelming when it comes to meeting fans. She mentioned very briefly about her training which I was quite grateful for as I am about to take a course in makeup artistry (to see where my interest in it takes me). There was a photographer taking pictures and amongst the excitement of it all, I forgot to have my picture with her taken on my iPhone. However, I did get a polaroid (unflattering photo of me next to Tanya who looked flawless) to take away.
Her range consists of 12 lip glosses and 10 nail varnishes priced at £6.99 and £5.99 respectively, and currently is sold exclusively through my favourite online beauty retailer, feelunique.com. I’ve been really disciplined and have restrained myself to one of each (after giving my credit card a severe bashing since I got paid 4 days ago, not to mention I have yet to pay off last months bill. Its a downward spiral!) I chose the shade “First Date”in the lipgloss, which going by the picture on the website, looks like a muted, mid-toned pink. With the nail polish, I opted for a much brighter hue by the name of “Managed Mischief” which looks like a very vibrant, warm red which I’m sure will get plenty of wear with red being my favourite colour for nails. Hopefully they will be with me early next week. Stay tuned for a review but a huge congratulations to the lovely lady. Well done Tanya!
